Monday Motivation: How to inspire the "non speaker" to speak.

www.endrebarath.com

One of my favorite books 'Doubling Your Brain Power' address this question and I thought I would share here and see what your thoughts are.

The ones who are what we call the silent ones, not just on Active Rain, but in real life.

These were the advice given:

 1.  Draw them out with praise.

2.  Ask pointed questions

3. Make comments that provoke response

4. Once they start talking do not interrupt.

5. Give positive feedback.

This reminded me of Active Rain... there are some who fit into this category. There are others who what I call 'Hopeless" they think Active Rain is a Bulletin Board not to interact but post you listings... my take is they are missing out and I feel sorry for them.

Just to be clear I am not here to lecture or help on provoking a response but if you like to add your two cents you are welcome, and I will appreciate it.

Hi Endre- I love the engagement we have here. I'm sure there are those who don't need to be engaged here and that would be their choice. It's a shame because they are missing out on the best part of this community.

Kathy Streib  we are on the same page, those who do not engage miss out.... not just on friendships that are created but also on potential referrals... I have been so grateful over the years of both, and it is all because of the interactions...Endre

I personally do not know if one gets more points for blogging or asking a question. You should check it out, some good questions and interesting answers.😜

Love the book and actually visited Ray's Mom (in a memory care facility) last night and do practice what I learned in that book with her, Endre. It's a challenge in real life, just as it is here in the Rain.

Drive-bys here, are what they are and in my mind, it's their loss. The people here are THE best part of this platform!

I agree with you, the people here are the best part, not the points.

Katina Hargrove 352-551-0308 - without a doubt! I've been rallying for years to do away with the points altogether! I finally got them to remove points from Q&A so, there may be hope! LOL

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543  glad my last post inspired you to buy it, and no it is not a novel, I reach over and grab a paragraph here and there:)Endre

Katina Hargrove 352-551-0308  maybe one of these days I will stop back in, like I said I found it to be a point collection like the drive by commenters when I stopped being on the Q & A, Endre

Debe Maxwell, CRS  we are on the same page, drive by commenters do not build relationships... no relationships translate to no referrals where I come from:)Endre

Debe Maxwell, CRS

Agreed! Our group on the Zoom calls build weekly upon that too - even our amazing stager who attends, gives out referrals! Ours is and always will be a relationship business no matter what the DOJ and the media promote, Endre Barath, Jr.

The driveby commenters just don't realize that they are missing out on a great community of like minded people who may be very different in many ways but share a deep interest in being good and decent realtors

Endre, Thanks for this one. It's important to figure out how to work with the shy ones here on the rain and make them feel safe expressing themselves here.

My sense this returns to one's purpose and one's values as demonstrated by their authentic or lack of authentic interactions. Sometimes we all get busy and do not comment as frequently in the past. Sure I could copy and paste, but that would not be in alignment with my purpose for being on Active Rain nor my values.  A very good post and a gentle reminder. Thank you Endre Barath, Jr. PS. I will add that book to my to buy list once I finish the current leaning tower of Pisa books.

omg Endre Barath, Jr. so glad Kathy Streib featured your post. Even though I follow you your posts seldom come up on my blog roll. I love  what you have to say. Many times I try to engage others and just get a like if I am lucky. I have not read the book novels are my forte
